Smoking gun: The Jerusalem Post

Smoking gun
: The Jerusalem Post reports that Saddam’s bodyguard escapes with the “smoking gun:” testimony of Iraq’s secret arsenal.

Abu Hamdi Mahmoud has provided Israeli intelligence with a list of sites that the inspectors have not visited.

They include:

: AN underground chemical weapons facility at the southern end of the Jadray Peninsula in Baghdad;

: A SCUD assembly area near Ramadi. The missiles come from North Korea;

: TWO underground bunkers in Iraq’s Western Desert. These contain biological weapons.

William Tierney, a former UN weapons inspector who has continued to gather information on Saddam’s arsenal, said Mahmoud’s information is “the smoking gun”.

“Once the inspectors go to where Mahmoud has pointed them, then it’s all over for Saddam,” Tierney said.
